[DOWNLOAD] Dubby – Fold Out Chair

hubby fold out chair

[SOUTH CENTRAL PENNSYLVANIA\ GEORGIA] We are blessed with another project by indie hip-hop artist Dubby, FOLD OUT CHAIR is a eight track project. Dubby will be releasing his official second album in 2018! And is not stopping anytime soon. Dubby is definitely an alternative artist, from the different kinds of melodies and flows to his lyrics and the variations of productions he chooses. After listening to FOLD OUT CHAIR, I find these tracks to really stand out to me such as Big Cuz, Festival, Backpack Rollie, Cannonball, and Demon. But if I were to pick one favorite, it would have to be Festival. It makes my hips move and my heart beat. He also released two visuals for with Big Cuz, Demon, and Chesapeake. You can take a look for yourselves below and of course the quality of his videos are always on point.


“How in the world is this guy not signed yet…his sound is ready. It’s all there” – CC @TheCCCompanies << I cosign this! He’s Ready!! -NikkiSiixx

The project includes features from Team Loko affiliate, Cal Mobley, Atlanta based artist, Wayne Chapo, York, Pennsylvania artist Kwame Katana and DMV artist Maurice Daniel and production by a plethora of producers. I find Dubby to be making smart moves when it comes to his selection with the people he works with. Continuously making good music working with the same creatives throughout his career. They understand his approach and they make his dream alive.

[EP REVIEW] AJB4 – VCR (Venting Can Restore)

AJB4 - VCR EP Cover

[CHATTANOOGA, TN] Making his return to NikkiSiixx.com we have Hip-Hop Artist AJB4 with his latest EP VCR (Venting Can Restore). AJB4 has released over seven projects by the year 2017 including his latest album “Organic Growth”. He’s received radio play from various online radio stations like K107FMJamz, GospelSynergy Radio and QSJRadio. His influences in music are Lecrae, Winans Phase 2, Charles Hamilton, 50 Cent and more. AJB4 says his main goals are to make good positive music, praise God, keep it real, and share experiences in his life.

DSC_8822I’m definitely enjoying the concept of the EP. By naming the project VCR (which the acronym for VCR is Venting Can Restore) gives the listener an ideal of the journey you’re about to embark on. For an artist/writer finding an outlet to express yourself, which can alleviate ones inner thoughts. This project is meant more for AJB4 because he was able to get these things off his chest.

VCR is an eight track EP, featuring JellyRoll and production from Flxtch, Brother Zone and Sha-Leik. The project was well put together and I feel like AJB4 was able to create a solid piece of work. I will be reviewing my favorite tracks off the EP, let’s see what I thought:

[CHRISTMAS 2015] AJB4 opens up on his introduction track. He discusses the time when he got kicked out on Christmas Day and some of the events that occurred after that. The song feels like he needs to remind himself to stay strong, no matter how bad things can get.

[LET ME KNOW] AJB4 is expressing his feelings towards a female who he wants to be with. But unfortunately she’s not available but AJB4 can’t help himself but wonder, what if? If she’s feeling him, he’s asking to let him know. AJB4 is witty and sincere on this one, and the hook is catchy too.

[JLO] I thought this track was playful. Considering JLo (Jennifer Lopez) is one of the sexiest woman in the world. This track is about finding his own version of JLo. I like the production to this track, from the hispanic hypnotic sounds and a JLo voice sample. AJB4 states “The song JLo might come off as a diss but I love JLo I just feel like me and her are a little similar when it comes to relationships”.

14080064_10210487478211216_4089353440208288217_n

[EXIT 27] This track brings a different element to the project. I find AJB4’s flow on the track to be admirable. Considering the track is regarding the girl he had a crush on that worked at The Books A Million. Which was located off EXIT 27.

[KING’S DAUGHTER] Words of Wisdom brought to you by AJB4. Letting us woman know we’re beautiful, valuable, and God will send us Mr. Right when we’re ready. Positive perspective to woman and the true joys that comes with it. Good vibes in this track.

AJB4 - VCR EP Cover BACKThis concludes my review on AJB4 latest project VCR (Venting Can Restore). I discussed which tracks were to me my favorites and what really stood out to me.

[MUSIC VIDEO] J. Nolan – GAME POINT

JNolan__Game_Point_Art


Making his return on NikkiSiixx.com, we have hip-hop lyricist J. Nolan with his latest short one-take style music video called GAME POINT. This visual is to get things started after he took a bit of a hiatus due to focusing more on performing live at shows, getting his music licenses, and building relationships within the music business.

GAME POINT serves as the introduction to his forthcoming project entitled Rise of ATLantis. The project is dedicated to his home town of Atlanta. Which in wants to create a balance of lyrical driven content, soulful hip-hop, and a bit of trap music. I find the visual to be interpretative. As you see him recite his lyrics in the elevator once he’s down he’s on the way up. Looking forward to hearing more dope content from J. Nolan.

[ALBUM REVIEW] Revolution Zo – Sheep In Wolves Clothing

Sheep in Wolves Clothing Final Album 200


[CLARKSVILLE, TENNESSEE] Making his debut on NikkiSiixx.com we have multi-talented hiphop artist by the name of Revolution Zo, he also is a producer and songwriter. We have his latest project SHEEP IN WOLVES CLOTHING. This soulful project containing ten tracks that really experiments with different styles of music variating from Hip-Hop, Trance, Soul, and Pop. Before we get into the music, let’s get to know a little bit more on who Revolution Zo is and back story.

Screen Shot 2017-02-25 at 7.37.15 PMLet’s go back 2003 in Winston-Salem, North Carolina where it all began. Revolution Zo started to create beats and sold them locally to other artists. But then his life shifted when mischief became a factor, he then moved to Clarksville, Tennessee. Revolution Zo was interested in expanding his craft by becoming a song-writer.

The benefits to creating music became like therapy sessions to ease with his troubles with his anger and depression. Revolution Zo embraced the Nashville music scene by showing support by attending and performing at shows. Getting noticed by Def Jam A&R in 2009, but due to some indifferences the contact was lost. Zo decided to take a hiatus and get ready for the next move.

In 2014, Revolution Zo had submitted some material that got a head nod of approval from 9th Wonder on his Ustream Listening Sessions. He even encouraged Zo that his music was dope and related to a different lane, that he should embark. Listening to his advice, Zo started to reconstruct himself and his music and starting to create his next project SHEEP IN WOLVES CLOTHING.
Revolution Zo Press Photo 04

I’m going to review my favorite tracks of SHEEP IN WOLVES CLOTHING. I do have to say the artwork alone is extremely eye-catching and sets the mood right for the journey we’re about to embark on.

[01 PSALMS] Revolution Zo is expressing himself melodically through this power introduction. Somewhat hypnotizing Revolution Zo gets you tuned in. The track kinda reminds me that it’s a type of anthem. Gaining control of your life and staying focus no matter what you’re going through.

[02 STRANGE THANGS] The unique production makes it so easy to vibe too. Revolution Zo is about to flow on this track is effortless. Zo breaks down how he comes off a bit strange. When going through struggles he doesn’t like to involve other people. He keeps it to himself and solves it on his own. He takes his mothers words of advice to be grateful and pray for you’re blessings.

[04 NITE AT THE DISCO (FEATURING SKYE)] With this track is completely different from the rest of the tracks. This is fits more in a club late night getting the crowd hype to keep on dancing. Skye adds a nice back vocals on the track. This goes to show that Revolution Zo can adapt to any sounding beat. This track makes you want to move. This is a dope track.

[06 BLACK DESERT] Revolution Zo gets grimy on this dark track on what he feels regarding all the negativity live can endure. Its like the negativity speaks through the track on the deep vocal. With God on his side he will be able to defeat these demons and speak a better path.

Screen Shot 2017-02-25 at 5.45.05 PM[07 RUNNING AWAY (FEATURING LOLLIEVOX)] I feel like everyone can relate to this track. When dealing with a bunch of issues and feel like you can’t break through. You feel the best way to get out of it is by running away. But in the end you figure the best way to deal with your issues is facing them. Revolution Zo tone on this track gives us an artist that’s opening up and expressing himself the best way he can and that’s through his music. Lollievox makes an appearance on the track.

[10 SUMMER LOTUS (FEATURING RUFUS DAWKINS)] On this track Revolution Zo expresses how he feels about someone he finds attractive, smart, and could possibility fall in love with. R&B & Soul flows through the production while Rufus Dawkins adds some melodic vocals to the track.

“Rev. Zo musical style can be described as melodic rap with introspect, it would seem that he acquires ability to lay his insecurities on record and expose his philosophical personifications as an emotional artist, dealing with expansive and nebulous feelings in acute and often self-destructive ways” – Press Release.

This concludes my review on Revolution Zo’s album SHEEP IN WOLVES CLOTHING. I broke down my favorite tracks, and overall it’s definitely a solid project. We would love to know what you guys think about Revolution Zo music. Make sure you stay in the loop and follow Revolution Zo on all his social media links below:
